Food Bank Donations

Wednesday 12 December 2018

"Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference."

This Christmas, Ark Boulton Academy are working with the Birmingham City Mission Group to help the homeless in Birmingham over the winter months. Birmingham City Mission is a charity committed to helping the needy and marginalised of our city, offering friendship and support to the homeless, elderly, young and those struggling with poverty. 

Winter can be a lonely and stressful time for many in the city, with no source for regular food, warm clothing or shelter. To help, students and staff will be donating non-perishable items of food in donation boxes. The Birmingham City Mission group will then use these to donate to the homeless and needy in Birmingham. 

You can help support us by donating to our collection by Wednesday 19th December. Items can include:

- Breakfast cereals.

- Soup cans/packs.

- Pasta & pasta sauce.

- Rice.

- Tinned beans/lentils/vegetables/fruit.

- Tea or coffee.

- Snacks/Biscuits/Crisps.

- Powdered Milk/UHT.

- Tinned meat & fish.

- Sugar.

- Rice pudding & custard.

We will be decorating the boxes in festive wrapping paper and adding a personalised note with a kind message for each donation box. Here at Ark Boulton we highly value our virtues of charity, service and gratitude, and this is an apt way to support and give back to our local community.
